There’s this cute little place called Bistro De Paris on Vesterbrogade that happens to host of Danish Cartoonists’ yearly Christmas Exhibition. Lots of great stuff on the walls, all very different – and there are FREE christmas cards, that you really want to get your tiny little hands on.
My poster is a satire on a German christmas card from the year 1900. Fresh on top of all our minds if I am not mistaken. I felt pretty clever pulling Krampus into the present, but he is not the only German fuzzypants christmas devil at the Bistro, and someone even told me about Krampus festivals. I felt very last mover until someone asked me “Did you draw the funny deer over there?”
The original German card here.
And heck, it’s december and all so here are some christmas cards from last few years. I LOVE drawing christmas cards.
This is the last one of the drawings you can bid on. I don’t know what it is about foxes… They are as cute as they are mysterious. As if they know. I have always dreamed of becoming friends with a fox, but mostly people mess things up if they befriends wild animals – they are way better off without us. But no harm done in living it out on paper.
Foxy stuff is HERE, and all the drawings HERE. So far the auction is going well to the point where my jaw drops daily. You guys are AWESOME!
When did I become a cat lady? I’ve had cats (and bangs obviously) most of my life, but not in the time I have been doing comics. So I am note sure how it happened that people began to think of me as a cat lady. In my strip Stine bliver klogere Anders Morgenthaler suggested including “one of those cats of yours” in the text box. At signings more and more people asked for cats. Not complaining thought, I am out and proud.
You can (almost) bid on the comfort of a kitty right HERE
I love tattoos but so far I have been too chicken to get any. One thing is the pain, another thing is the allergic-reaction-thingy and the no control with the materials that are used. I have a billion ideas for motives, but the bravery of a new born pigeon. But I guess that’s what cartoony alter egos are for, right?
You can bid on my tattooed butt crack right HERE (or just visit it for fun).
“I am unable to dance,” she confessed. “With my lack of balance and all.” Me, I love dancing (though I am awful at it), and I wanted to dance with her very much. So here we are.
Maybe we are going to dance forever on someone’s wall. I hope so.

The early version of this was just flowers in the hair and a little smiley smile. I was really happy with myself until i realized I had completely lost myself in just drawing great flowers. While I was rather pleased with the flowers, I was very annoyed with the empty feeling on the rest of it.
I wanted to add a cat! But I always want to add a cat. People are sick of all those cats, just stop it (I was yelling with my inside voice). I decided to draw what I felt like and then just not use the drawing for anything, even though I liked the little story of how you can be surprised to discover you have a cat on your head. My good friend helped me chose the drawings for the auction and she told me I was being silly and put it in there right now. And here it is.
It is the one doing the least well, so instead of a great auction I might have invested it a spectacular told-you-so-moment. See for yourself HERE (if you are not busy or anything).
I don’t remember when or why, but at some point someone suggested to me that I should do more drawings on being an introvert. I am equally introvert and extrovert, but I guess I do have a tendency to draw mostly about my extrovert side. Maybe because it is difficult to draw a love of being alone, when alone is a word mostly associated with sadness? I imagine introverts sees this drawing as someone in a heavenly place while very extrovert people think it is about being trapped – but I guess all these feelings are personal and different and please don’t hit me. Jars are hard to draw by the way.
So far it is the most popular of my drawings over at Lauritz.com. Follow the bidding HERE (if you wanna)
(Yeah ok, the ladder wasn’t easy either)
I was pretty surprised to get an email from Lauritz.com asking me if I wanted to auktion off some drawings with them. Boy did I ever! It won’t make me rich with all the taxes and the VAT and the fees. But it is exciting to send your babies out there and see how they do.
You can see them all HERE
I have decided to tell the stories of the drawings that go under the hammer, one by one.
This one was the very first in the bunch I created for the auction. Or was it before? I do not remember WHEN I drew it, but it felt really special to me. Like this is how I am supposed to draw… Ok, that sounded better in my head. Moving on. I wanted to portray the feeling of comfort a relationship with a cat gives you, and how I really really want to reverse it when I am feeling small. Imagine being adopted by a mama cat with healing powers of purring and soft fur. That must be the safest place in the world.
You can bid on it HERE (or not, I won’t judge)
